I used my cartoon character , Juuichi Juuichi (a.k.a. “11:11”) in the video. My step mom & friends at Amazing Grace in Ballard, Seattle, helped me sing & we recorded it at Audio Logic INC with the fabulous Jay Kenny, who also played fiddle! Thanks everyone involved!
My friend in Baltimore put motion to my cartoon character Juuichi Juuichi! Thanks Elizabeth!
I am consistently being stopped or asked if I’m Lauren Graham or Annette Benning! What a compliment indeed! I tend to get Lauren when I’m heavier in weight and Annette when I’m thinner. Several years ago , when my hair was shorter, a woman asked me for my autograph thinking I was Annette Benning! Sweet!
It would be fun to be either of those fabulous leading ladies…if only for one day! They happen to be 2 of my favorite actresses as well!
Where have all my wings gone? My favorite pair I lost on an air plane (left them in the overhead compartment)! Someone must of liked them because they were never returned. Maybe they needed them more than me…I miss them nonetheless.
My other favorite wings I gave to my buddy Stewart because I had to move & he liked them. They were green. I had just won the “GREAT GREEN BALL” annual window dressing contest, fundraiser for the arts, in Asheville, NC. My theme was “Give Your Green To The Asheville Art Scene”, so, I dressed as the “Money Angel” to support the arts. It was super fun!
But I’m wingless again! Back to the sewing machine…I’m ready for a new pair!

Found out I needed a hysterectomy in 2008. I found drawing and writing very helpful. In 2009 I posted a series of hysterectomy cartoons called “The Hysterical Hysterectomy” on http://www.flickr.com/theartangel . These cartoons are used often in other peoples blogs and websites. My coloring book/journal will be available soon.
